No changing rim size etc?!? What all the customizer do? What about racing cars or off road freaks?

Dunno, I’ll look into it.

Theres a law here now saying you cannot fit bigger/wider wheels/tyres than standard to you vehicle so that takes the decision out of my hands.

That really sucks. Especially as you have a 110 and not a 90. I think 110's only came with a 7.5 radial but the 90s had up to a 265/75/16. 💔

Well yes and no (and I’m yet to get to the bottom of it) I have found the power loss on oversize tyres quite significant. 

 

Edit: poked about a bit on the web, it seems any tyre wheel combos have to be an approved size by the manufacturer.

Tidy job there, but you need a NATO hitch on the back so its easier to snap that webbing strop on when yr pulling Hiluxs out from where they shouldnt be 😉 K

I was supposed to be buying a cheap transit for a day or 2 with the chipper every couple of weeks??? 

oh well, I managed nearly 8 months without a defender (after 18 years of continuously  owning one)?

Nato hitches are terrible. As are sankey trailers. Only the british military could come up with  such an over engineered rattly design, and a trailer that can be towed across a ditch but is next to impossible to reverse. Pin/ball hitch combo would be more use, then if you are bothered enough put the strop through the pin.

I once got somewhere a landy could not get in a Vauxhall Frontera . Had to come back and tow it out .  2.4 petrol . Mostly down to driver technique I think .

Mine towed a Euro Daf to garage that had buggered its clutch. Never used Low box so much. 

 

Main reason i used Nato hitch is it makes my trailer harder to steal. K
